CS:GO Tournament Preview

CS:GOThe epic.LAN Counter Strike: Global Operations tournament is all set to hit the stream with 9 teams arriving in Kettering ready to fight it out for a piece of the £1000 prize pool!
There are some familiar names, some not so familiar names, and even a rag tag mix of players formed right here at the LAN.

  • Interp!
  • Rasta.mix
  • Team MINISTRY
  • TeamCRG
  • The loveliest men
  • The not so lovely men
  • TheLovelyMen
  • CSGO Lan Mix


Heading into the tournament TeamCRG and The not so lovely men lead the pack with TeamCRG being the returning winners of epic.ELEVEN, and The not so lovely men being a mix team made up of very high ranking CS players in the ranked matchmaking. That is not to say that it will be an easy battle with the likes of TheLovelyMen featuring ex CGS player HenryG and while Interp! is a community team, their roster includes former caster McRossy!
Rasta.mix, Team MINISTRY and The loveliest men are all formidible contenders looking to take some of the limelight away from the favourite teams, while it is always worth keeping an eye on a team formed at an event. CSGO Lan Mix have everything to prove and nothing to lose, will they be able to go toe to toe with rosters with months, if not more, practice as a team?

CS:GO Grand Final Recap

Though the two teams present in the Global Offensive grand final were in fact the top two seeds of the tournament, this didn't always look as if it was going to be the case. The second seed, mix team fish123, made their way through the upper bracket dropping only a single map, to the third seed TeamCRG, the team that put Infused in the lower bracket final. Infused had a tough run to make it all the way, finishing second in their group meant that they faced fourth seed TLR in the first round of elimination, a match that took all three maps to determine a winner. After dropping to CRG, they defeated the Lynx once again, this time 2-0, and found themselves yet again against TeamCRG. This time they had their revenge and took the win 2-1 seeing the progress to face fish123.

CS:GO Round 2 Recap

Those here at the event in the competitive gaming hall may have just heard the explosive end to the semi-final game between the tournament's top two seeds, Infused.Tt and TeamCRG. The series spanned all three maps, with the first going 16-7 in TeamCRG's favour and the next 16-8 to Infused.Tt. The third map looked to be going much the same way with CRG ahead 15-8 and looking to secure their final round to take the win and enter the upper bracket final.

CS:GO Round 1 Recap

The first round of the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive elimination bracket began late last night, with the final game coming to a close just a few minutes ago. As expected the four seeded teams progressed in to the elimination phase though most of them were greeted with a non-seeded team to play in the first round. This was not the case for the Infused or London Lynx team, who found themselves head to head due to the triumphs of TLR during the group stage.
